Eleven veterans, former crew members of the USS Gen. H.W. Butner, gathered in Wabash for their 41st reunion over the weekend.
 
While the group consisted of nine Navy veterans, a Marine veteran and an Army veteran, the men all insisted “we’re all in the Navy this weekend.”
 
The group had a busy weekend, touring various sites around Wabash and Miami counties on Friday, followed by a day to wander through Wabash on Saturday morning and afternoon, and a banquet Saturday night. While many of the wives and other family members took advantage of the chance to tour downtown and its offerings, the veterans opted to stay at the Charley Creek Inn, where they swapped stories and viewed thousands of photos of the Butner and past reunions.
 
The idea for the reunion was born in the Pottstown, Pa., area.
